The Rotary Club of Sonoma Valley mobilized its community service team to clean up Depot Park on a recent Saturday morning (pictured above). Led by Chair Mark Zuehlsdorff, the crew included fellow Rotarians Gary Edwards, Gary Scott, Jon Parker, Don Ryndak, Dave Pier, Ron Lawson, Bill O’Neal, Dave Waldron and Rich Lee. The cleanup consisted of pruning, raking leaves and removing litter. Last weekend, the team cleaned up the grove behind the Maysonnave House, immediately adjacent to the park.
Sandy Young, a Sonoma mixed-media artist, was awarded “Best of Show” for her art piece “Open Book” at the national juried show “ABZ Etcetera” at Sebastopol Center for the Arts.
The jurors stated, “This piece got our attention right away. The materials, text and imagery are beautifully integrated and we loved the multiple media used ... with a mastery of her materials.”
